On an Enforcer 93, what would be the recommended Marker binding? 6'1", over 200 lbs. ?

The Griffon ID or if you have access to the demo bindings, The Griffon 13 TCX D, which has the race heel.

Will 90 brakes should be good for the 93 Enforcer?
Yes, barely. Marker Royal brakes have the lest amount of size range. I would almost say the new 100mm brake would be better.

Nordica Spitfires have the “FDT XCELL 12” binding, which Marker binding is that(comparable too)?

Are they Gripwalk compatible?

HI,
Marker Griffon 13 TCX D (emo) Adjustable Ski Bindings.

How do I adjust the HEIGHT on the toe piece - AFD HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT? I can't find the screw? Not on the front / rear / top of toe piece.

Is it possible they being a demo binding they don't have one? I slid a biz card between the boot/AFD and it's WAY tighter than what is listed as normal, "Able to pull card out w/slight resistance".

These came on a pair of Mantra 102s I just rec'd from SkatePro in Europe, so I think these may be a 'Euro-spec' binding, and I'm not finding an adjustment for this model online.

I found these Tech Handbooks for Marker, but since they got bought by Volkl / Voelkl in the last year or two, no luck on current season.

Facebook DM'd Marker and they to told me to see a local shop. Pending SkatePro's response via FB and email....box was rec'd damaged (skis appear OK) so pending email from their CS for that too.

If you know, please inform.

Thanks
